Default For Sale - Free Kindle EBook - Drinkable History FO FREE

Thought since I had posted these in the past then I'd go ahead and continue the trend. Here's another free Kindle book from Amazon. I'm not sure how long this will last so get it while you can!

Here's the link

The book is entitled "Drinkable History: Easy Recipes for 3000 Year Old Hard Cider, 1500 Year Old Mead, and 1000 Year Old Ale"

Description:
Publication Date: May 21, 2012
This is not a book about the artistry of home brewing. This is drinkable history. It’s crude, rough, and primitive. If you’re looking for a modern, refined beverage, you won’t find it in these pages.

These are some of the oldest human recipes for alcohol. They predate the invention of glass. In some cases, they predate the invention of steel. In fact, the oldest recipes for beer predate the invention of bread.

In these pages you’ll learn how to brew the same sturdy booze enjoyed by Vikings, Eurasian Nomads, and Medieval workers. There’s nothing like it available in stores today. If homebrew snobs turn up their noses at your efforts, remind them this was what people drank morning, noon and night as they spread across Europe and created western civilization as we know it - so shut up, drink up, and show a little respect.

In the spirit of authenticity, you’ll not only learn how to make your own hard cider, mead and ale, but also how to make both yeast and malt from scratch.


Looks like a very interesting read, IMO.

The book is normally $5 but you get it for free. Who doesn't like free?

Enjoy!!!

Actually, it really is worthless... Information included has zero value. Ale recipe isn't even a recipe with any information you can actually use (can't even translate/convert it to something of use). The mead recipe made me want to scream at the publisher. Not even worth taking the time to look at it...
